Thanks for the links, I will check them out again, just to be sure. But 
at least for now, I see them as a form of reification of 2+ arity data 
into RDF, whereas what I've been wondering about is the lack of 
fundamentally n-ary formats, where RDF's named binary (ternary?) one is 
just a special case. I mean, everybody who's ever done real work must 
already understand the basic problem with binary, named relations: they 
simply make your query and update language nasty, and also subliminally 
guide you to use substandard physical storage organization.
